Laser acne scar removal
As a result of the severe forms of acne on the skin, scars remain, often causing frustration and complexity. It is still unclear why some acne leaves scars and some do not. There are two basic types of acne scars depending on whether the defect occurred below the skin level (atrophic scars) or above the skin level (hypertrophic – keloid scars). 80 -90% of people with acne have atrophic acne scars. Thanks to Syneron-Candela’s latest technology, these irregularities can now be corrected. Laser acne scar removal with less pain and twice the recovery time from previous treatments offers the first fractionated bipolar radio frequency current system, eMatrix.
eMatrix is a bipolar radio frequency (RF) device that transmits energy to the skin in a controlled manner over 64 diodes. The energy of RF currents in the skin is converted to heat, warms the tissue and produces 64 micro-damage on the surface just over a square centimeter. The skin reacts to the injury by regeneration, creating new collagen. The skin becomes tighter and more supple and the scars fill. This “point” injury leaves the surrounding tissue intact, further accelerating the regeneration process.
Laser acne scar removal with a classic fractionated laser requires a long recovery period of several weeks. The Fraxel laser damages up to 70% of the epidermis during treatment. Clients with darker skin tend to have hyperpigmentation after laser treatment. Laser acne scraping with a fraxel laser is often contraindicated in a client with an IV-VI skin phototype. Unlike the Fraxel laser, eMatrix only damages 5% of the epidermis. eMatrix can be used safely in all photo skin types with a minimal recovery period without hyperpigmentation.
Laser acne scar removal is performed in a series of 3 treatments every 4-6 weeks.
The first results are seen immediately after the treatment, when the skin is soft and smooth. She sees a lasting, real result only three months after the series of treatments is completed. Laser acne scar removal is a safe and effective treatment. The treatment lasts only 10 to 20 minutes depending on the region being treated.
